Early June in Colorado

Jump to last reply

The facts: two parents, 14 year old, and 20 year old boys. Colorado trip either the first week of June or first week of July. Likes - rafting or kayaking, maybe some biking and hiking, photography. We are not more than intermediate level for any of these activities. Also just relaxing and eating! Flying in/out of Denver, most likely, and renting a car. Six or seven days to spend. Budget $200/night on lodging (need space for the boys), but saving a little here or there would be great.

I am considering Denver, Colorado Springs, Glenwood Springs. Denver, Colorado Springs, Great Sand Dunes. Or, Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Estes. Any comments or suggestions about itinerary?

Questions.

Is the first week of June too early to go rafting in Colorado. That is, will the water be unbearably cold? I am guessing that waiting until July will be warmer, but less water flow.

How would one drive Colorado Springs to Glenwood Springs? Backtrack to I-70?
